So I built my new PC about 2 weeks ago and, for the most part, everything is fine except for a slight issue. Basically, every so often my computer will freeze for a second or two and a loud buzzing noise will come from the speakers before returning to normal. It has tended to be while playing music in the background/watching YouTube videos, and I am yet to experience it while gaming or using the computer under heavy loads. It occurs pretty randomly and I can't seem to reproduce the issue, so quite at loss here.

My CPU and GPU were overclocked, so I've lowered the clock speeds and reinstalled my GPU drivers, but still having this issue.

For reference, I'm running an i7 9700K, Asus RTX 2070 Super EVO OC, 32GB Crucial Ballistix 3200 MHz, and Corsair TX650M PSU. Motherboard is an MSI Z390 A Pro.

Would appreciate any advice on what to do. Thanks in advance.
